Behavioral & Cognitive Disorders
Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) is characterized by gait disorder, cognitive decline, and urinary incontinence. Hydrocephalus in NPH is a consequence of the disequilibrium between production and absorption of CSF. In the majority of cases, ventricular enlargement results from an obstruction of the CSF flow around the brain convexities and insufficient absorption through the arachnoid granulations and arachnoid villi of the superior sagittal sinus.
